That was what "a prospector located" for Edison, and that Is what I will locate under YOUR hat—if you are not a fox. Phrenology reveals latent powers, unused because unsuspected (as in Edison's case), shows how to develop them to highest perfection—and in what occupation—prevents failure, Insanity, nervous prostration, suicide, etc. Phrenology Insures financial success, physical health, great longevity, matrimonial felicity, mental balance, educational completeness, harmonious culture, increasing influence, fruitful parentage, with improvement of the race by laws of heredity.

Daniels, one of the most prominent business men of the San Gabriel valley, occurred at the Clara B&rton hospital of Los Angeles last Saturday night, after Mr. Daniels had undergone an operation for appendicitis. During the twenty years of his residence in Azusa, Mr. Daniels held many positions of importance. In 1891 he organized the Azusa Valley Bank and became its cashier. He was also in charge of the Covina branch which the bank maintained for three years. In 1906 the Azusa Valley Bank became the First National Bank of Azusa, and Mr. Daniels became its vice-president, a position which he held at the time of his death. He was one of the organizers and for many years secretary and manager of the Azusa-Covina-Glendora Fruit Exchange, and traveled widely in its interests. For the last three years he had been secretary of the Azusa Foothill Citrus Association. The funeral service was conducted Thursday morning at the family residence, Rev. C. E. Richardson of the Presbyterian Church officiating. Mr. Daniels is survived by a widow and two daughters, Miss Dorothy and Miss Sara Daniels. Men of the calibre of Philip C. Daniels are the makers of such com- upoti this mar's endeavors and real* Ize how strong was hjs influence toward the right kind of progress. Daniels was a man who had ideas, a man who remained conservative, but also possessed the courage to undertake a project in the face of the ultra-conservative, and in accepting his leadership, the business men of the valley have profited Innumerable times. Daniels was a man who understood finance as applied to the conditions in the fruit districts. Ho understood the possibilities and the limitations of ,the locality he had made his home. He never took advantage of any man, but invariably stood for business deals that brought forth dollar for dollar on both sides of the transaction. Evidences of his earnest, capable work are to be found in all the towns where he exerted his Influence. These evidences of prosperity are monuments to the man, and it Is with infinite regret and sorrow that the people think of his early death. Practically his whole career was before him. Ills splendid executive ability would have carried him to high places in Southern California. The people who knew him, dealt with him, and associated with him are filled with genuine mourning. It could not be otherwise. His name and his works will be remembered. It is not too much to say that Philip C. Daniels will be known in the future as one of the cornerstones" of progress In the San Gabriel valley. Amphion Open Night.

At a special meeting of the trustees of the Covina grammar school Monday evening, the resignation of Prof. 'Karl C. Leebrlck was regretfully accepted.

Prof. Leebrick has been a thoroughly capable teacher since coming to this position two years ago, and the schools as a whole have felt his Intelligent management In a way that shows credit to this young mail.

He has received the commendation of educatorc throughout Southern California for his work here, and many have predicted success for him in larger fields. The Covina grammar schools, since his management began, have become ' known in this part of the state as having reached a high standard of efficiency, Prof. Leebrlck goes from Covina with the wishes of all the townspeople.

The Covina Valley Gas Company, under its recently reorganized management, has succeeded in soiling bonds to the extent of $50,000, and will immediately begin operations in extending lines to Glendora and Azusa. The bonds were sold through the Adams Trust Company of Los Angeles at a fair premium.

The franchise for the carrying on of the enterprise in Azuua has been secured and a county franchise given the company in Glendora.
